What is low-dose immunotherapy for patients with an overactive immune system?
If you deal with certain medical conditions, you may be curious to learn more about natural and holistic ways to manage them. While pharmaceuticals can address many of the symptoms of chronic diseases, many men and women want to get away from manmade medications and take a more holistic approach to healing their bodies and managing their health. At the Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine, our team of professionals serve patients in and around Stamford, Connecticut, and may find that treatment with low-dose immunotherapy may be the solution to an overactive immune system and chronic symptoms that can occur.
What is low-dose immunotherapy, and how does it help with immune system symptoms?
Low-dose immunotherapy, sometimes referred to by its acronym LDI, is a novel approach to treating autoimmune diseases and other conditions associated with overactive immune systems. It involves the administration of small doses of an antigen to stimulate the body’s immune system in a controlled manner, allowing it to recognize what it normally attacks. By introducing the antigen in a low dose makes it possible to reduce the intensity of the immune response so that the body’s own cells are not attacked.
LDI has been studied in a variety of disorders, including:
- Chronic fatigue
- Herpes outbreaks
- Chronic sinusitis
- Crohn’s disease
- Food and environmental allergies
- Multiple sclerosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Chronic Lyme disease
- Yeast sensitivity
- Acne and skin rashes
By using LDI for immune desensitization, you may experience minimized symptoms associated with your diagnosed condition. This can help alleviate problems that impact your quality of life and provide a more natural way of treating the body and supporting its natural healing and recovery.
